Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Like most of you, I am super excited for PAX. Last year was my first and I must say, was an experience I will never forget. My friends from work and I made some great memories.
Anticipating PAX for this year has always been at a dull roar and started to become "real" when the passes went on sale back in April. My friends and I would make PAX references on a regular basis to keep the fire burning this whole time.
Like some of you (maybe), my life as a nerd/geek has been suppressed a bit after marriage. It's not that my wife doesn't appreciate that part of me, it's that our life together has different priorities and for me, it was hard to balance them all without repressing some of my own desires. Recently I have found that we both have been making more time for ourselves as individuals and this has let me go back to my "roots" by getting together with friends and doing some of the things I love. But one weekend a year (and possibly two next year!), I get to experience what has made me who I am inside so long ago. Penny Arcade Expo is that outlet, that escape, that necessity to remind me where I came from. I just wish I could have found it sooner.
All that being said, I wanted to say, PAX is here in just HOURS!!! LET THE NERD ORGY COMMENCE!
